Among many others Bartovanec worked with Sasha Waltz, Jochen Roller, Mirella Weingarten, Beate Bormann and William Forshyte. In 2008 Bartovanec' first solo Project "When my mind is rocking I know it's 7" premiered in Berlin and was later nominated for the Czech Dance Award "Cena Sazky". Since then, he appeared in several films, finished further solo projects and is working as a rehearsal director. He is currently working with the Spitfire Company on their newest piece "Sniper's Lake" and prepares several separate projects for New York, Berlin, Seoul and Prague.
